Scope of WorkA. BackgroundThe Lake Brazos Dam was constructed in the late 1960s in order for the City to impound water;(water which had been appropriated to the City under its oldest water right). Over the years,several revisions were made to the dam to solve various maintenance problems. One solutionwas to modify the hydraulic gates to keep the water levels constant. After many years ofmaintenance issues, the dam was replaced with the existing labyrinth weir dam. The existinglabyrinth weir dam was built on the foundation of the previous hydraulic driven gated dam.Logs and debris float to the dam, and the narrow sections of the dam catch the trees thataccumulate over time. The trees are then forced underwater by more incoming trees, whichincreases the difficulty of removing the trees as a whole or individually
